A comment on 1 Cor 2:2

One of the many things I love about theology is the impact individual phrases and sentences can make on me. They don’t have to be flashy, or long winded, or say anything new. But, on occasion, a few of them somehow stay in the back of my mind, drawing the energy of my thoughts, enticing me to worship and adoration. Here is just such a one:

‘Jesus Christ can only be preached as the crucified one’

-- David E. Garland, 1 Corinthians, (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2003)

Great quote. And to add a Bultmannian comment: Only when Jesus is preached as the Crucified does he become present as the Risen One!

Sorry, it's not actually a quote -- it's just my own paraphrase of one of Bultmann's central themes.
